Have you tried AFNOG ?

They have a mailing list

AfNOG Mailing List

The AfNOG mailing list is established to provide a forum for the exchange of technical information and the discussion of specific implementation issues that require cooperation among African network service providers.

To subscribe, send an email message to [email protected] with 'subscribe afnog' (without the quotes) as text in the body of the message.

A friend of mine is working on one of the committees for next years
Supercomputing conference and noticed that, in the past, they'd had
participants from most continents but none from Africa. Does anyone
know of a good organization/group/etc which we could spam with our
conference notice and request for participation?

PS: For those who are curious, here's part of the write-up for the SC Global
portion of next years Supercomputing conference:

SC Global is the multi-national and multi-cultural meeting place for
communication and discussion of ideas relating to high-end computing and
communications and their impact on science and society. SC Global 2003
will be the second time we've held such an event; we have the
opportunity to build on the successes of SC Global 2001, and to learn
from its challenges.

SC Global will include several Showcase events featuring art, music,
dance, and other innovative uses of advanced collaboration technologies.
In addition, SC Global will be an important extension of SC 2003's
high-quality technical program. For example, papers presented in SC
Global will meet the same high standards as those in the regular
Technical Papers sessions.
